- The Neighbourhood Walkability Checklist is designed to help individuals and groups to survey their local walking environment. It will help you to identify the aspects of your local environment that help or hinder you when you walk. Your completed checklist will provide structured feedback to your local council. It will outline issues with facilities and infrastructure in your local area and identify improvements to the quality of the environment.
- The Route Based checklist is designed to review a specific route within a municipality. It will allow local government or other organisations to identify any issues that may exist and highlight where improvement can be made for different categories of cyclists. It is recommended that you review this checklist, ride the route (‘saddle survey’), then complete the checklist. The Bikeability Checklist is not designed to evaluate or pass judgement on your Local Government in any way. Rather, it is a tool for reviewing and identifying areas of potential improvement.
Placecheck is the simplest way of finding out what a place and its people can tell us, and starting the process of making change happen. It is a way of getting the ball rolling, and of getting people talking and thinking. It can feed into democratic and representative structures later. A Placecheck can be carried out for a street, a park, a neighbourhood, a town centre or any other place. There is a free App. Go to: https://placecheck.info/en/
